Hello, and welcome to the Atlas Library!
When your student checks out a book from the library, they are allowed to take them home. They will not be allowed to check out another book until they return the first. If they forget their book(s)on their class library day, they are welcome to bring the book to the library any day after to exchange. If a book is overdue 3 weeks, it turns into a fine (replacement cost). If a book is damaged, a fine is attached – not to exceed replacement cost. Library class consists of story-time, check-out time, and reading their “new” books. I do my best to make sure each student has an age-appropriate and reading-level-appropriate book to read when they leave the library, but if you have concerns please contact me. Remember that library fines do not just go away, they follow your student through their Middle and High School careers, so take care of those before you leave Atlas Elementary! 4th and 5th graders check out and are responsible for their textbooks; please remind your students to take good care of them so future classes may use those.
